I've been sort of scarce here. I know it. It's been hard to stay inside and paint. Partly it's because it's been desperately, unbearably hot in here. But then that's no excuse, since what work I've been doing can be done outdoors.

The latest heatwave makes even THIS impossible though. But now it's week three, which is sometimes a fat week, and I have some leftover funds to hide out in the gently air conditioned cafes. So that's a relief.

Then there's the classes.


For the last three Saturdays we've been heading over to Research Club headquarters. We set up chairs, put tea in the little box next to the sugar, get the teapot going, get the various screens connected to each other. And then we put Anthony behind the desk and let him do his thing.


It's been a treat to listen to this version of all his years of learning. And it's been a treat for us to be able to share his brain with people who are genuinely interested. We've got five classes left in the series and they just keep getting better. I don't know what we're going to do with our Saturdays once they are over with.
